Yesterday afternoon my wonderful godchild came to plant a rose bush that I had recently purchased. I've been wearing my trusty, incredibly stylish, big black boot for the last few weeks and besides not being able to plant the rose, I also hadn't able to go under the porch to turn on my outside faucets so she did that as well. (I'm hoping to be able to put this boot back in the closet very soon as my larger garden needs lots and lots of work.) Her girls also came which made Emma deliriously happy and later we went to Hornstra Farm in Norwell for ice cream. Though it was a very cool, damp afternoon the parking lot was filled just the same.
Last fall, I began working on "The Witchy Ladies," a pattern by Sue Pritt of Sweet Season Quilts. I faithfully followed the colors indicated in the pattern but added a few of my own touches.
Here using two blue, metallic beads and some metallic floss I added a spider to the web.
Next, I sprinkled notes emanating from the pipe organ.
I also had fun adding Swarovski crystals for eyes and for a sparkly night sky.

All of Sue Pritt's patterns are very detailed and whimsical.
